How to disable toaster notifications on Windows 8

First of all, maybe you don’t know what is a Toaster Notification ?  Well it is in fact a popping up message that tells you input about what is going on.  Here is an example :

This example happens when you insert a disc.

If, like me, you are annoyed by this, there is a little trick on how to remove that notification :


  1. Open Registry Editor (Run -> regedit)
  2. Browse to the following path : HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
  3. Modify / Create following entries (DWORD type) and set their value to 0  (zero) :
  • ShowInfoTip
  • FolderContentsInfoTip
  • StartButtonBalloonTip
  • EnableBalloonTips


Reboot your computer and you should be good to go.
